Director Robert Schwentke‘s R.I.P.D. has a new television spot making the Internet rounds. Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star in this Buddy-Cop-Supernatural-Action-Adventure. They’re dead peace officers brought back to protect and serve the living from dangerous souls that refuse to move on to the after life.
The question is, can this movie garner enough audience to make a real run at making some Hollywood money? We know they’re going to draw in the Hellboy and comic reading crowd, but what about the average movie-goer?
The cast is well-rounded and has quite the list of fan favorites to draw on. We haven’t seen Kevin Bacon‘s role on-screen yet, but the production team is sure to make that a key point to draw in those not familiar with the comic.

R.I.P.D. hits theater screens on July 19th, starring Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Mary-Louise Parker, Stephanie Szostak, Robert Knepper, James Hong, Marisa Miller, Mike O’Malley and Devin Ratray.
